So near to a full house on #bookspinbingo this month and yet so far…🤣 I was going to push myself to finish as I‘m currently reading a *lot* of books, but decided to chill and go with the flow instead. I do get rather obsessed with ticking off lists and it‘s not doing me any good.

For the same reason, I‘m going to give September‘s bingo a miss and see where #moodreading takes me.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else‘s bingo picks though!

TheAromaofBooks I totally understand the list thing! This month I'm playing around with some different ways to pick my next read so it isn't quite as checklist-oriented!!! 1y
Megabooks Great job! 1y
marleed I get that. I struggle with the control of lists, as well. Some months I toss my Bookspin list after the BS and DS are revealed so that I only have a list of two in order to enjoy mood reading. 1y

rockpools That is a *lot* of books! Have fun with your mood reading 😊 1y
squirrelbrain Thanks for your support @TheAromaofBooks @marleed - lists are great until they‘re not! 1y
BarbaraBB I know what you mean! I have been mood reading in August and loved it. I‘m having a hard time going back to the challenges! 1y
Caroline2 Yes, the commitment to challenges and lists can get a bit much. Reading should be enjoyable and relaxing, if you ask me! Not an obligation. Have fun mood reading! 😎 1y

Working on finishing up these three titles from my January #BookSpinBingo before I finalize my February list ?? (I should probably clarify that "Goodbye Things" was a late, last minute add and I'm not even sure it fits any of my #moodreading freebie spaces but... here we are! ?‍♀️)

Any additional current reads are in that lovely, bright lilac/purple-y color. The tagged title is my January #BookSpin selection.

#2020 #JanuaryReads #ReadingGoals = 10 books

Here's my plan for January.

Now, as is the case with most plans, it's flexible to allow for group reads yet to be announced on Goodreads #IntoTheForest and #ReadWomen as well as to allow for #moodreading and/or library holds coming in sooner than expected.

Not sure if I'll read #ComeTumblingDown as soon as it's in my hands or if I'll save it till February... decisions, decisions. 🤓

BridgetteM @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks! I can‘t wait to get started! 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Me too. I already know what I‘m reading first ... and, of course, out of order. I am the #rebelreader and host. 🤪 3y
Sace Woo hoo! I tell myself that I'm going to stay up past midnight and read in the new year, but it's more like I'll get up at the crack of dawn since I can't seem to stay awake past 8 PM. 🤣 3y
BridgetteM @BarbaraTheBibliophage #rebelreader. I like the sound of that! @Sace I probably won‘t make it either. Wishful thinking on my part! 🤣 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Sace Me too! On NYE I stay up until midnight. But most nights I‘m tucked in relatively early. I treasure my morning reading (and Litsy!) time. 3y
Sace @BarbaraTheBibliophage what is this "order" of which you speak? ? 3y
Sace @BridgetteM @BarbaraTheBibliophage yes, I'm at the age where staying up late is not my cup of tea, but dinner at 4 and bed by 8 is fine by me. 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Sace 🤪Not sure if you‘re teasing or asking for real. Some people read the prompts during the season we hosts place them in. I‘m a little more rebellious, as are a lot of others. We support either approach. 3y
Sace @BarbaraTheBibliophage I was teasingly asking because I hadn't thought of reading during the season. I was planning on reading kind of when I wanted to...then I got worried that it was "cheating". I feel better now ? 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Sace Oh okay, good. Glad to help make #moodreading feel like a positive thing! 😘 3y

Picked up a fantasy to see if it‘ll help get me back in the reading mood because I‘m currently reading a contemporary and it‘s not doing it for me. Also, look at how cute this hufflepuff bookmark is!

Avanders Love the bookmark! Also, loved that book! Hope it works for you!! ♥️ 3y

I think I bought this on a Daily Deal, so I‘d better read it, right? Poignant is one of the descriptions in the blurb. So far I‘d agree.

Megabooks I like this book more than the movie. 4y
Cortg I really liked this book! The movie was meh. 4y
Blueberry One of my top favorites the year I read it. 4y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Megabooks @Cortg I liked the movie, and so far the book‘s about equally good. Not quite at 50%. (edited) 4y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Blueberry Wow, that‘s a great endorsement! 4y
